No, my guess is your experiencing a little rust on brake rotors, or something similar. What happens when you do it with slight pressure on brakes, does noise change? Does it matter which way you turn? Doesn't happen at other speeds?

SOURCE: 93 Grand Caravan right rear wheel/brake problem(s)

well i can help with problem #2

even if you tightened the wheel bearing, it is probably worn out..

what it does when it's loose is you won't hear much noise when you drive on a strait road but the minute you put some weight on it, like when you take a curve, the weight of the body is applied on the bearing resulting in a scraping noise....

and the faster you'll drive the more noise you'll get

so let's say you take a left turn you're gonna hear noise from the right wheel...

What coul possbly cause scrubbing nose at right from wheel on 2004 dodge Dakota


Most likely is a problem with the brakes like worn out disk brake pads now making metal to metal dragging between the disk and caliper. take it to a brake shop and have it checked, because it is unsafe to drive if it is this issue.

Why is my 1987 300e Mercedes making a loud clanging noise at start up?


I would think the honeycomb ceramic "Brick" inside the Catalytic Converter has broken up, makes a terrible rattling when this happens.

MY CAR WONT GO OVER 10 MPH. IT HAS A SLOW WHIN NOISE UNDER THE TRUCK WHEN I DRIVE IT ALSO. I AM THINKING THAT THIS MAY BE A CLOGGED CATALYTIC CONVERTER.


That is a very good possibility. However, if this is the problem, you also need to find out WHY the catalytic converter is clogged. Otherwise you will only destroy a new converter.

My check engine light came on about a month ago. Code was catalytic converter. Teh light went off/away on its own. Van ran fine to me & made no noise. Sometimes it would miss/skip once it hit 10 mph....


the catalytic converter might be disabled due to a problem with ignition coils. They most likely need to be replaced. Here is a site (click link) with people describing similar problems, including the hesitation/miss/skip followed by the engine running roughly and cat problems. Engine coils are the most likely culprit, common with your vehicle unfortunately

Rattling Noise


The power steering pump could be going bad. The noise coming from the catalytic converter could be something as simple as a mounting bracket coming loose, or worst case something busted internally.
